Why is the Republican National Committee censoring its own delegates at its convention? Every American citizen is protected by the Constitution, which gives us our First Amendment rights. The RNC isn’t a part of the federal government and only serves as a platform and leadership for the Republican Party. But sadly, it restricts the core rights of our nation on its own members. Never would I have thought the rules of a political party would supersede the Constitution; this just shows you what’s wrong with this picture — the rules are different for those in power.
